xox russian roulette

by openchallenge on Sun Jul 29, 2012 1:18 am

I bought a used xoxbox on ebay. The more I look at it I can't tell where it came from. It has a faceplate like willysyx but has a power switch above the adapter socket. I'm just wondering who made kits that looked like this.

The tt has not arrived yet. Anyone suggest a plan of action? I sent the seller a message saying it was a ko. should I push for a refund now? Is it worth fixing if the parts are substandard? I know there have been kits with decent rare parts included and this does not appear to be a prebuilt version (it has been built and is supposed to be fully functional). I can absorb this and move on but wouldn't mind other options.

how much did it cost?
since it's a TT x0x, it probably won't have a bootloader afaik, which means that you won't be able to flash firmware
other than that, if it works - it works, you might wanna make tuning/calibration and/or some mods

if it doesn't work, you could still try to figure out what's wrong with it, and probably fix it

it's your choice, if you bought it cheap, i'd say give it a try

It was cheap. I contacted the seller and he said he built it and uses AS_x0x to tune it. the bootloader is not a perceived issue either. It will be here tomorrow I'll post a test video.

cool, i hope it works

as for the bootloader, you can buy a preprogrammed atmega162 (with the bootloader) from x0xsh0p, willsyx and probably some other guys

Yeah, it's pretty comfy. I had a xoxbox waiting for me in '08 but was stuck with people who wouldn't pay their part of the rent when I got the email. Nice to finally have one.
